Recap: 'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Homecoming'

 So, last week we learned a lot about our Originals, and I suspect we're going to learn a lot more, as tonight is the midseason finale and we won't be getting any new blood until January 5. As last week set up a battle royale between Klaus and Mikael, this could be one hell of a showdown. Or it could be an epic fail, not for the show, but for Elena, Mikael and Damon. Whatever plan they've put into place, you can be sure Klaus won't stumble easily into any trap they set. Part of me honestly hopes he doesn't, really. Klaus has been a great foil for the Salvatores and a villain with a dark and twisted humanity that renders him both sympathetic (Daddy-who-wasn't-his-Daddy never loved him) and terrifying (betray him and you're dead -- even if you're dear old Mom). Of course, the fact that Elena is surrounded by allies who could flip flop at any moment makes me think tonight will have more than a few twists and turns.

 We kick things off by Stefan putting Operation Kill Klaus into motion. He calls Klaus up to tell him Mikael is dead, or at least daggered. Stefan, who doesn't care, just wants to know what to do with the body. A body which is, oddly enough, there (I'm sure all will be explained momentarily). Klaus is cautiously optimistic.
